  1. Introduce them slowly and just keep an eye on them when they play as huskies can be rough. I have a chihuahua and my husky is fine with him. My chihuahua is the boss. To be honest if be more worried about the chihuahua as they are little lions.
  2. I know, I've got someone coming to lay turf soon. He has to level garden god knows what will pop up.
  3. We have had to change some of our door handles due to my dog opening them. We have put the olde fashioned door knobs on rather than handles. We've also put some locks on doors.
  4. He will Bury whether he's hungry or not. I gave him some tripe he went off and buried it, 5 minutes later dug it up and ate it.
  5. My sibe since he was a puppy has buried his food and bones etc. I know dogs do this. However he does it daily. If I'm out hiking and give him some meat out my sandwich he buries it on route. The foot in the garden from he will dig up when he's ready and bring it in the house. The cat brought a dead mouse home the dog got it and he buried it in the garden. I had to wait til he finished and go back and dig it up to put it in the bin. I gave him the left over beef from last Sundays roast it's somewhere buried in the garden til he redigs it up. Is anyone else's sibe a prolific burier.
  6. My sibes ears were floppy as a pup. I think the muscles have to develop. If in doubt there are dog DNA tests. I was unsure with mine the DNA came back a pure siberian Husky with a pure Alaskan Malamute. It makes no difference to me but his behaviour wasn't typical husky so I got a DNA.
  7. I would get her checked in case she has a kidney infection. Female dogs in general take longer to house train. All the female dogs I've had have always took a long time to house train. I'd go back to basics with puppy pads etc. Don't scold her for doing it on the bed or she will start to do a sneaky pee. White wine vinegar help neutralise smells.
  8. Thanks Maz for all the information­čśü. I've been working him up and building up walks and my hobby is walking and hiking so huskies are perfect hiking buddies. I walk all weather wind rain just not in the heat. I think he will enjoy a run out now and again with the scooter.
  9. Maz thanks for the info I do 14 mile walks regular with him now. I use gloves as I live in a rural area and walk him on 50 ft leash and he's clever at going after pheasants and hare so I get rope burns. If when you have the time a photo of your rig would be helpful. I do have a walking belt which the suicide line might attach too? I use the belt hiking its a well padded one for Huskies. I only have one husky so its an extra form of excercise for him. Currently he gets two good walks a day unless I'm off out for a long walk on the moors. I bought some mushers secret wax ready for winter. He likes to run but I'm not a runner hence the scooter.
  10. Thanks for the info. I'm wondering how to hook the secondary line up. I know one is from scooter to dog but how does the second line work. Unfortunately there are no clubs up near me in the North. I won't be ru ning him on the hard as I know it's bad for paws. I'm I getting a go pro mainly for safety.
  11. Hi, Learning my boy the commands just got myself a great second hand scooter. When I'm looking at the rig and Google there is lots of contradictions on it. I would like some advice from someone who does use a scooter to excercise their sibe. What's the length of the line recommended please. I do have a 6ft long bungee leash plus harness which is a husky harness. Is 6ft leash long enough or would I need to attach this to a longer gangline.
  12. My boy is 12 month old now. He's been clingy. He's had no issues sleeping downstairs before. The last two nights we've had little sleep as he's been at the bottom of the stairs whimpering in a pathetic whine. I won't allow him upstairs to sleep and never have. I feel as though it's an attention cry. He's well excercise fed watered and let out in the garden pre bed time. I ignored him whimpering after I went down stairs to check everything is OK. I didn't pet him or acknowledge him etc. This is because I don't wish to reward him for whimpering. He has kept me awake the last two nights. He's not my only dog but he is such a big baby any ideas to stop the wimpering. I won't crate him..
  13. I only let mine off in a secure enclosed dog park. Funnily enough it's the people have never owned a husky that's will argue they should be off leash. No way will I let mine off. He has a strong prey drive the minute he's got a scent he goes crazy.
  14. If you have not got pedigree papers the only way to be sure is a dog DNA test. I did one on my dog as I wasn't sure about him. He came back pure bred husky with pure bred malamute. He looks a lot like a husky but he's not.
